How can I copy a button?

Hi, I’ve created a button that opens a form. I want to copy the button to another page in my doc. I can’t select the button to copy/paste, because clicking it opens the form. I feel like I’m missing something that is simple. Thanks for the help.

You can highlight the button using the mouse cursor and then use Ctrl+C to copy it. But it can be weirdly tricky to try to highlight the button itself.

Yeah, it can be tricky, especially if there is not a lot of room around the button. You can also click cloe to the button, and then use the arrow keys to move the cursor onto the button.

Thanks for the help guys. Yes, that was trickier/more annoying than it needed to be. For anyone else who might need it, I clicked just to the right of the button, which brought up the cursor to start typing. I then held CTRL+LeftArrow to highlight the button. CTRL+C, CTRL+V. Worked like a charm.

Just a note, if your button interacts with another control, you can copy & paste both at the same time and the copies will have new names that correctly link to each other. You can edit the names after to make them accurate.
